The Republicans have got more guts than burglars by holding out for a $500 million tax giveaway to oil companies and giant corporations as the price for passing the budget. The budget is more than 90 days late, California is cutting services for aged, the blind, the disabled, poor women and children who are living under poverty, and the only people they’re looking out for are the billion dollar corporations.
What’s more, these irresponsible and insensitive Republican demands would only add to the very same structural deficit they keep complaining about. We can only assume they believe deficits are acceptable only if they help enrich big corporations while taking more and more from those who have the least to give.
